The Show: Ruff, ruff goes the beagle to the terrier…

One of those shows where we somehow got the gentle ambient field recordings of birds, rainfall, running water and accompanying beats (thank you HAAST – HĀWEA, SODA LITE, THOMAS L. BIGELOW, MASAHIRO TAKAHASHI and OV PAIN) to somehow co-exist with the more crunchier numbers (looking at you HAVENS and BLACK DRESSES). Plus all sorts of other things in between (like the welcome returns of KITTIN, THE HACKER and DESTROYER). #somuchgoodmusicnotenoughtimeforitall

The Show: Don’t go overboard…

Don’t go overboard says Blair Parkes. But today we did, with a sneaky threesome from his new album “over bored”. We can never say no to perfect pop music.

The Show: And here’s David with the weather…

In these post-lockdown Covid-19 times of social austerity and a craving for “normality” there was a brief temptation to revert The Joint to a conventional adult-contemporary radio format. For that reason we roped in David Lynch to do a regular weather report for us.

And it’s not a new phenomenon born out of recent cabin fever but something he’s done on and off for years.  E.g. here’s the weather report from 1 February 2005 with assistance from Laura Dern.
